De Le Hoya is definately more consistant and competitive even when losing. His fights are always close! It will be interesting to see how tito goes next week.

Trinidad did not win a round until the 10th! this was one of DLH's best performances clouded by the last three rounds. Well 3 rounds do not win a fight and Trinidad looked second rate prior to the 10th round.
rounds 5 and 6 were given to tito on all scorecards, including the one done by harodl lederman while the fight was going on. He didnt win a round until the 10th, o wow talk about a bias.

No bias here those middle rounds were as good as anything DLH has fought, he was screwed that night by judges, lederman and anyone else who believed that fantasy. Tito looked well out of his depth in that fight early on and yep having watched the fight again recently never won a round until the 10th.

Heart - Tito
Hand Speed - Oscar
Power - Tito
Ring Generalship - Oscar
Combination punching - Oscar
Jab - Oscar
Footwork - Oscar
Defense - Oscar
Killer Instinct - Tito


Tito has more heart, a better killer instinct and more power. But he isn't the better fighter.

Sounds about right but the power thing is close. People seem to forget it took 8 rounds of lefthooks and uppercuts from Trinidad to finally put down Mayorga and it took a body shot actually and Mayorga letting Tito tee of on him in the 1st while Oscar hit him with a righthand-lefthook and Mayorga was done Oscar just carried him for some rounds under his belt.

DLH. Much more versatile IMO. He can fight backing up and get his power off on the balls of his feet. Tito only know how to come forward and needs to plant his feet to really get his power off. Plus DLH throws from a lot more angles than Tito
